A blog about Lamb Island in Moreton Bay, Queensland – a unique little paradise under forty kilometres as the seagull flies from Brisbane CBD.
Because of restraints on time, and let’s face it, only limited material on a small island, some posts are being recycled/updated from earlier.

Old, but still deliciously fruity.

This is the almost-two-metres-across trunk of a massive mango tree, possibly more than a century old, and one of a number of mango trees still remaining on Lamb Island that were originally planted by early farmers back when the local volcanic red soil made growing fruit and vegetables the island's main 'industry'. Fortunately, the heritage-listed status of these trees doesn't preclude us locals from helping ourselves to their abundant fruit every Summer.
